I also like to creat peices for my church in Hopkins according to the church year. These pieces are for Lent which really means Spring ,Ascenstion, and the beginning of Trinity season.
I retired last May which seems a life time ago from teaching. This tree was outside my classroom window. I painted it one mornnig before school started. Trinity Lutheran School in Bangor, Michigan a beautiful blueberry area next to lake Michigan.
Wendy, When are you going to post about summer art lessons? I've been waiting :)

For you Bible Readers the symbolic meaning is a little clearer in this piece. Synbols are difficult to use in clear art communication as they limit the artist's audience.... Here an Artist takes a chance that maybe the viewer thinks, looks or pursues further for themselves in their own daily life for the symbols meaning.

Scripture of course is the subject matter of course and I tried to present it in a modern way.

Finished... now the painting is mine... I stand corrected. He is a Korean War Vet. Family wishes only his first name be published at this time. Clarence. When I paint these military portraits I think of the freedoms they have given me to be creative.

Day 7 Had a Doctor’s appointment this morning and not such a good day afterwards ...then after supper iSeemed to gather some strength as a storm front was comeing through...My paintings go on the test wall for a while...If on one says anything major is wrong after afew days...They pass the test...So I dared to put it up..Those who no nothing about art sometimes are best critics...I listen to what people say as they visit...So I pulled up my school desk and now I’m beginning the details in the eyes, buttons, glasses,etc...Making the painting mind now...

08/28/2020

Day 6 Ooo... Now the fun part ... The painting starts to become mine... I move away from the photo and do the details ... But I can't life is in the way. I have real life commitments today. So It's research day on another painting as I have traveling and housework to do today that can't wait. This watercolor painting I did years ago when I backpacked to Beaver Island out in Lake Michigan. I never learned the name of the fruit on this bush. I sold two prints of this original. I figured it's time I find out what these purple lemon like fruits are. So I emailed Beaver Islands '
Chamber of Commerce today and am waiting for a responce of some kind. Boy when I pulled this out I was surprised to see how my painting style has changed over the years.

That evening after supper when all dinner dishes were done and things were settled down WALLA... it worked....

08/28/2020

I couldn't stand it. What was going on with this mouth. I couldn't get. I kept stepping back from the easel and remeasuring. My brain needed needed a distraction. Time to call Captain Don and go fishing ... so I did.

08/26/2020

I realize the mouth is wrong so...I wipe it off...My studio is big enough so I can stand back and look and I look at it backwards in a mirror then I can see my mistakes right away...so back to the drawing board....

08/23/2020

DAY- 2 Sometimes painting is cleanup, sometimes practice painting, other times just playing in the paint, sometimes just thinking things through. Studying is involved. Where do I go next?

08/22/2020

And just for the heck of it this my dog Sache. She is a stinker.

Why do paintings always have to be square? Well I did this one for my church in a Middle Eastern style-- A circle Round-- those of you who are church goers may recognize alot of the symbolism. The cross... the water lily for peace... the fish for christians... the drops of blood for saving grace,,, the triangle for Trinity and the circle for eternity. This is done with cut paper. and water colors. Sometimes cuttin up scraps can be alot of fun.

08/22/2020

Oranges I painted back in February when I craved anything remotely like the sun. I gave these this a shower gift. I think the bride to be was craving the sun here in Midwinter during snow season like I was.
